    Is the only way to stop the ads now with a fresh reset of the phone? Last two months new adware showed up. Thought I had rid myself but nope, almost every time I get to the lock screen there's a Kroger ad. Any thoughts?

    Have you installed any Kroger apps? If you have, uninstall them.

    If not, see [Guide] Malware / Adware / Popup Removal.

    The trick to uninstalling the adware is to find which app it is.

    Some adware apps show ads from the beginning of their life. Other adware apps started off as a well-behaved app then eventually became adware with one of the monthly updates.

    More on the ad ware. The ad ware is from Brave Blocker and Kroger and its sneaky. When you restart the phone in safe mode it disappears once you restart for a few minutes and then reappears. I don't have a Kroger app on the phone and I'll be damned if I'll buy an ad blocker that is ad ware.

    Next time don't install sketchy apps, they will pop up with ads.. read the reviews before downloading.
